Skin, body, and haircare reviews
I’ve been in Chicago for the holidays since last week and I’m not heading back to NYC until next week, so I packed a bunch of travel-sized products to last through my whole trip. Here are some of my favorites.
My hands are always dry during the winter, so this Tocca Hand Cream has been so useful. I love the Florence scent, which has notes of Gardenia, and that it sinks in quickly.
The Drunk Elephant Marula Oil is super hydrating, so a little bit goes a long way. I’ve been using this at night instead of a night cream and it’s helped with the flakes around my nose. This duo is a great way to try the oil and their amazing glycolic serum.
I also travel with the Pekee and Juju bars from Drunk Elephant- one for a gentle cleanse that removes makeup and the other for light exfoliation. I never thought I’d like bar soap, but these are so effective and convenient. They also last forever compared to a traditional liquid cleanser.
I received this Beauty Protector Protect and Volume Spray in a Birchbox and I’m really considering picking up the full size. It adds shine and volume to my thin hair and provides UV and heat protection. I love that it has a spray nozzle and smells lovely.
This tiny Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Cleanser only lasted four uses, but I really enjoyed it. It has a nice gel texture with a light scent. It removes makeup really quickly, so I used this at the end of the day.
I’ve tried a couple things from IGK and really like the brand so far. Their Coconut Oil Gel adds moisture to my wavy hair. The light hold helps tame frizz as well. I use about a dime sized amount from my ears to ends.
